Laughing Stock would also be Talk Talk’s final album as the band’s members decided to pursue solo careers, especially Mark Hollis who would then release his 1998 self-titled album. Ultimately, Laughing Stock along with their previous record, Spirit of Eden and Slint’s Spiderland are considered some of the first true post-rock records and would later play an enormous influence on more modern post-rock bands in the decades to come. Laughing Stock Q&A. Producers Tim Friese-Greene. More Talk Talk albums. Live at Montreaux 1986.

First, Talk Talk was a New Wave band, and a fairly successful one at that. By their final album, the band (or what was left of it) abandoned that staple and moved to a more experimental sound. Spirit of Eden, the album preceding this one, abandoned all pop sensibility and led directly into this remarkable, influential album. But how influential was it, really" From my point of view, no one takes any ideas from Talk Talk anymore

Talk Talk - Laughing Stock. The 5th and final studio album by Talk Talk, originally released in 1991. Housed in a single pocket sleeve. 180 gram black vinyl. Includes digital download code.

Since the age of 16 my favourite album has been Talk Talk’s 1991 masterpiece and swansong Laughing Stock. The album marked the end of the fascinating career of Talk Talk, a project which, beginning as a mildly interesting pop group, slowly transformed into a vehicle for the most unexpected, conceptually ambitious, and beautiful experimental rock. After Laughing Stock, bandleader Mark Hollis released one remarkable solo album before more or less vanishing from the music scene entirely. Laughing Stock sits among a class of albums which excite feeling and passion as much as thought

Talk Talk were an English pop and rock band formed in 1981, led by Mark Hollis (vocals, guitar, piano), Lee Harris (drums), and Paul Webb (bass). The group achieved early chart success with the synth-pop singles "Talk Talk" (1982), "It's My Life", and "Such a Shame" (both 1984) before moving towards more experimental music in the mid-1980s, pioneering what became known as post-rock.

Now, defining post-rock itself can be a dicey task, particularly because it can entail just about anything that’s a little bit rock and a little bit anything else. But to put it in an easier to dissect example, the foundation that Talk Talk laid out on Laughing Stock can be traced to bands like Mogwai and Godspeed! You Black Emperor to Sigur Ros, and to some extent, even Isis. That’s not to say they all sound exactly like Talk Talk, because they don’t

Virtually ignored upon its initial release, Laughing Stock continues to grow in stature and influence by leaps and bounds. Picking up where Spirit of Eden left off, the album operates outside of the accepted sphere of rock to create music which is both delicate and intense; recorded with a large classical ensemble, it defies easy categorization, conforming to very few structural precedents - while the gently hypnotic "Myrrhman" flirts with ambient textures, the percussive "Ascension Day" drifts toward jazz before the.

These magnificent reissues of English art-rock innovators Talk Talk's 1991 final record Laughing Stock and their reclusive leader Mark Hollis' 1998 self-titled solo album are presented on immaculate vinyl. They sound as good as these albums have ever sounded, in any format. There are many ways for a band to follow up a hit. None of them is guaranteed to work, but some are more likely than others to flop, artistically or otherwise
